> Plan it. Be­fore you start bak­ing up a storm, de­cide what you’re go­ing to make and how you’re go­ing to pack­age it. It’s a good idea to choose treats that can be made in ad­vance and frozen, think cook­ies, rum balls and fudge.

> Stack it. Ever no­ticed how some things look bet­ter when there’s more than one? A stack of thin cook­ies or a clus­ter of three or five tru les is vis­ually very ap­peal­ing.

> Wrap it. Clear or pat­terned cel­lo­phane bags, mini tins, card­board boxes and, of course, a cute lit­tle jar all have the power to trans­form baked treats (even the less-than-per­fect ones!) into a thing of beauty.

> Tie it. Striped twine, rus­tic-look­ing string and sparkling or cloth rib­bons are the per­fect fin­ish­ing touch.
